This is a must-go when you visit Virginia Beach. We took the girls (ages 6 and 9) to the boardwalk and stopped here for dinner first. The wait was 20 minutes for an outdoor patio seat (shaded) and we spent it at the beach bar, sampling their specialty drinks "Orange Crush" and "Ruby Red Crush" ... a great way to... More

This is a very busy restaurant located directly on the beach. We went early..5pm..to avoid having to wait. We liked it so much we visited x 2 during our stay and walked from our hotel about 1 mile away. The service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. I had the Chicken and Ribs specialty dish which was... More

Great restaurant for oceanfront-boardwalk dining. Begin in the bar with a few Orange Crushes, made with fresh squeezed orange juice right before your eyes, white rum, triple sec,& a splash of Sprite. Order an appetizer, relax and enjoy waiting for a table, or, dine at the bar. Outside dining available with fabulous view of the ocean and interesting boardwalk patrons... More

Almost immediate seTing right by the ocean. Awesome view of the ocean and boardwalk . Our food was deliciosa. Crab dip was a huge hit with my daughter and wife. Bacon wrapped scallops scored a home run with me. The Ultimate Seafood was small but delicious. The prices were a bit much, but you get what you pay for (see... More

We ate at this restaurant during our family's first stay at Virginia Beach. We arrived early and took advantage of the valet parking, which is no charge other than tips. We arrived just before 5PM and had no problem being seated immediately. The kids menu was decent. I got the crab-cakes and they were delicious. My husband ordered a fried... More

We've eaten here a few times while visiting friends in the area. The food is always good and tastes fresh. The restaurant is right on the Boardwalk, so you can loo at the ocean or people watch. Their signature drink is an Orange Crush and it is delicious; orange vodka, orange juice and Sprite (and I'm sure some other special... More

We are locals and go to Waterman's often. My entire family loves Waterman's. We have eaten just about everything on the menu. One of my favorite's is their Tangier Island soft shell crabs. We went for brunch this past Sunday and that was the special. Soft shell crab w/eggs benedict. It was the best soft shell crab I have ever... More

We ate here a couple of years ago and now we make sure we eat here at least once each trip. We get there before 6 pm to take advantage of the 1/2 priced orange crushes. Family loves the hush puppies too. Have only ever had the crab ripper but have enjoyed it each time. The staff is always friendly... More

I had heard that Waterman's was a great place to try so we drove down from our hotel and parked in the parking lot down the street from the restaurant although, Waterman's offers Vallet, we weren't sure if we had to pay extra for it, but I don't believe that there is any extra charge. We walked in and there... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday and were seated immediately. Six adults and one infant in our party. The hostess was very friendly and our waiter almost followed on her heals to take our drink order. We all ordered off the entree menu and there was not a bad meal between us. Earlier in the week we had... More
